  1. Visio online download as PDF

    It would be extremely useful to be able to download a PDF file from Visio online. This function should also be possible via a share link to the Visio file. Here's a use case:

    I want to share a Visio grid with others inside and outside my organization. This way, when I make changes, they just go to the same link every time to see the most up to date version. Then, if they want to download the file, they can download as a PDF and print or do whatever else they want with it. They also may not have…

    • Import an exported Microsoft Flow package to auto-generate a diagram

      Very similarly to this post (https://visio.uservoice.com/forums/368199-visio-online/suggestions/32605921-visio-online-integration-with-microsoft-flow), except the reverse. Just like you can export a SharePoint workflow and import into Visio, be able to import the exported package of a Flow into Visio - so something equivalent.

        • Allow editing on phones

          When editing, I get the restriction message 'can't edit on anything less than 9 inches'.
          I can do a whole PowerPoint presentation on a phone, which seems much more complex. I'm on an iPhone X, but any of the phones, new iPad Pros (with pencil support!).

          I liked where Microsoft is going - any device, any time, any where.
          Please let Visio march along to that!

          • Display the list of sheets in visio preview on the right as a list.

            Display list of sheets such that the user can select from a wider variety of sheets than the ones at the bottom. Alternatively recenter the selected sheet after selecting it so that traversing diagrams with many sheets can be done faster

              • Print View or Export to PDF (viewer)

                Please provide the ability to Print and/or save to PDF, when using Visio Online viewer.
                In my orgainisation, only a limited number of people are creating process maps, and have access to the full clients or Online Editor licences. The majority of people are consuming these processes using the online viewer. Not having a native print function is a show-stopper for us, particularly with senior management who like to print this kind of content and annotate.

                • Ishikawa/fishbone diagram

                  I often need to do root cause analysis and have to use third party tools for a lot of the lean six sigma tools, many of these are easily generated, however ishikawa diagrams can be a real pain with formatting.

                  examples can be found here https://www.google.se/search?q=ishikawa+diagram&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwigw7CKpqHeAhVJjiwKHVdNDL8Q_AUIDigB&biw=1536&bih=675

                  a dynamically arranged version of this would be really useful to save a lot of time

                  • Search, find objects through multiple pages

                    It would be great if we can do a search or find objects through multiple pages in Visio Online. Currently, you can only find objects if you are on that page where the object(s) is/are located.

                          • New file template management for SPO document library – Visio files not working!

                            The new SharePoint file template management solution as referenced in the article below does not appear to work with Visio files.

                            https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/Announcing-new-file-template-management-for-document-library/bc-p/257976#M2731

                            When clicking on Add template, it is possible to upload and see templates appear for all other office file types (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), however Visio files do not get added when performing this operation.

                              • Fix Unwanted User-Defined Shape Data Value Truncation in VSDX Drawings

                                Problem. A user-defined shape value is unexplainably truncated to 0.00E0 in some (but not all) shapes when saved as a .vsdx-formatted drawing.

                                Desired Outcome.The original (correct) shape value is 1.00E-7 when saved as a .vsd drawing and should be the value for the .vsdx drawing.

                                Observation. In Visio 2013 + 2016, when a .vsd drawing with a "bus" shape is saved, closed, and opened as a .vsdx drawing, the user-defined shape value for failure rate changes from a numerical value of 1.00E-7 to 0.00E0. This behavior does not occur with every shape. For example, the failure rate for "Bus, substation"…

                                  • import shapes

                                    Want the ability to import shapes like you can in the desktop version of Visio. Or be faster about adding shapes that are requested (like AWS shapes). You added Azure shapes, but we also use AWS. draw.io has both AWS and Azure and I am forced to use that program due to I am using a Mac (no desktop Visio) and Visio Online doesn't have AWS shapes.

                                        • Add datasource Office 365 Users Connection

                                          Like PowerApps, please add the Office 365 Users Connection as a datsource. My use-case is building an advanced org chart which includes user profile information. O365 integration is a way that Visio Online can outshine visio desktop.
